In her talk, the author will include the "who, what, where, why and how" of accomplishing writing tasks in general and reaching goals. Also she will touch on self-publishing, indie publishing and traditional publishing. Other topics to be covered are self-promotion along with marketing and advertising for writers. She expects her current work in progress—in a different genre—to be released in the fall of 2020.

About the author

Buckroth’s colorfully illustrated books for children focus on the issue of Type 1 diabetes, also called Juvenile Diabetes or TD1, and how to deal with it by way of her lively characters, including a dog called “Money.”The titles include: “Me & My Dog named Money...a child's story of diabetes, Book One," "Me & My Money Too, Book Two," and "Kisses for Cash...T1D meets T2D,” Book Three, which compares type one and type two diabetes.

These books bring light to the pandemic of T1D - Type One Diabetes - along with the escalation of diabetes in animals. Written for children as well as young adults, the stories hold valuable information for adult readers, as well. The books are available as a set.

Both editions of Buckroth’s autobiography, "My Diabetic Soul - an Autobiography," and the Revised Edition, are available as audiobooks in addition to being in paperback.

The Saturday, June 8, event at UOP is free to all interested parties: students, faculty and the general public. Parking is free, as well. The address is 3601 Pacific Ave., corner of Kensington and Dave Brubeck Ways, in Stockton.
